Everything we know about Jesus by William C. Kiefert

The Practical Side of Heaven

Originally written on April 24, 2002.

It is as difficult to push square pegs into round holes as it is to stuff everything we know about Jesus into one box. To do “on earth as it is in heaven” and also the “greater things” Jesus promised we could, we must stop limiting him to the “historical method” of interpretation. This is an outdated product of the Roman Emperor Constantine’s demand at the Council of Nicaea (325AD) that the church be unified under “one” doctrine.

Jesus did more than die for us. He also taught us a godlike, non-judgmental process of reasoning, the logos or logic of God. Combining the non-judgmental logic with the present judgmental process (Aristotelian Logic) expands our consciousness of reality. In this renewed or enlightened consciousness, unused potentials of our mind are awakened, empowering us to do what Jesus promised we could.

In John 8: 31-32jvb, for example, Jesus said: “If you make my word your home, you will learn the truth and the truth will set you free.” The Word or Will of God

The Gospel of Thomas

Video and description courtesy of IMBUED on YouTube.

The Gospel of Thomas: For spiritual seekers and those dissatisfied with the teachings of the established church, the Gospel of Thomas collection is a series of spiritual writings that provide unique explanations and insights into Jesus’ teachings in the Gospel of Thomas.

Discovered in a library hidden for over 1,500 years, the Gospel of Thomas reveals spiritual teachings of Jesus. They provide an inward certainty and joyousness based on a timeless tradition of truth which was omitted from orthodox Christian dogma. It consists of sayings attributed to Jesus before 52AD that pre-date the books and epistles of the New Testament. The Gospel reveals the spiritual teachings of Jesus in their purest form.
